Time of year
Even on an overcast day in October, it was just breathtaking scenery. Leaves changing colors. Magestic peaks. HIke, bike, stroll, ski. Whatever - enjoy.
The Dolomites are definitely something else..stunning! Good road, not too difficult to travel. There are several small cafes and souvenir shops. But view is the killer…amazing. Must visit place.
We are staying in Barbiano, so Gardena Pass is just across the hill. Left early as we watched the traffic up and down the hill, it’s heavy. Great drive, some people think they are race car drivers and drive to fast and tailgate. So if ya want a leisurely drive better start…
We did this pass upon leaving Corvara - it’s one of my favourites in the area, love the great green views you get from this one. It can get busy with cars, buses, motorbikes and cyclists so maybe try getting up early if you can. There is some parking at the top of the pass…
We drive up from selva. A winding scenic drive through the gardens pass. Parked at the top and hiked route 2 to the very top. Amazing views all the way up and from the top. Screen underfoot at times you need good footwear. Takes a couple of hours
